Theodore Seuss Geisel (1904-1991), a life-long cartoonist, was most famous for his children’s books and least known for his work as a political cartoonist during World War II. Between 1941 and 1943 he worked as chief editorial cartoonist at the PM Newspaper in New York, a liberal news publication, during which time he drew over 400 political cartoons. Illustrated in his typical style and signed Dr. Seuss, the cartoons addressed a wide range of war-time issues and controversies. [Source: http://apus-06-07.wikispaces.com/political+cartoons+-+wwII]
